About

TJ Indigo is a small line of indigo shibori one-of-a-kind clothing hand crafted in Toronto. 100% natural fabrics & dyes.

TJ Indigo Clothing Co. is a small line of eco-friendly indigo shibori one-of-a-kind clothing & bedding for the whole family, hand crafted in Toronto • 100% natural fibers & natural indigo dye • All of our fabrics, dyes and leather are of highest quality and sourced right here in Ontario.

TJ Indigo attempts to reinvent clothing, inspired by inherent freedom and calm of nature and a profound respect for it's beauty.

We design essential, timeless pieces to work and to relax in for the free-spirited woman who is the main character in her own story.

Working with a professional fashion designer we incorporate minimalist zen aesthetic with sculptural feminine silhouettes, comfortable, functional and unique. I hand dye everything in small batches using natural indigo in my studio. Experimenting with traditional Japanese and new and innovative techniques, effectively turns each piece into a fascinating work of art. I feel that it is the combination of bold, free flowing indigo patterns and top quality tailoring that sets our clothing apart from most other options.

My 13 year old son Jay is the J in TJ and is my number one assistant and a mastermind behind our kids t-shirts! !

I really hope you will find 'your own' one-of-a-kind indigo pieces in our collection. Thank you for visiting our shop!

Care Instructions Do's and Don'ts

-According to my experience, test and study, well-fixed and rinsed indigo dye garment can be hand / machine washed on gentle cycle in cold water and hanged to dry. First and second washing should be separate from others, but after that will not rub off onto other clothing and will not shrink. Do not bleach. Do not dry clean.

Why go natural?

Indigo shibori clothing being inherently 'user and earth friendly' was a major contributing factor in my decision to pursue this business. As a mom of a newborn I became determined to make clothing that was ‘good’ enough for a baby. And if it's good for a baby it's good for the earth too and we all need earth, you know, it's the only planet with ice cream :-)

Synthetic indigo, like other dyes, used in the vast majority of clothing contains harmful chemicals such as aniline, sulphur, hydrosulphate and formaldehyde, toxins that seep into our environment.

‘Natural indigo made from indigo plant is not only the safer, cleaner, more ecological choice; it has the power to heal the earth, provide work in areas of rural unemployment, and offer Ayurvedic health benefits which, according to Fellowship 500 member Ayuvastra, include antibacterial and fungal properties, immune stimulation, skin detoxification and purification and even blood purification.' – Source Ethical Fashion Forum

When comparing natural vs synthetic fibers, natural is again a clear environmental winner. Synthetic fabrics are made from and treated with heavy chemicals that are released into air and water. Synthetic microfibres or 'micro plastic' have become a huge environmental issue, 'micro fibers' from laundry waist water end up in the oceans and are ingested by small organisms, introducing toxic pollutants to the food chain (google it up, really). It is estimated that around 1,900 individual fibers can be rinsed off a single synthetic acrylic or nylon garment.

Natural fabrics are sustainable, less toxic, longer lasting and bio-degradable.

And most of us will agree that natural fabrics like cotton, silk and linen simply 'breathe' and feel nicer on the skin and become softer the more you laundry them while natural indigo beautifully 'glows' in the daylight!
